Zhuravno Orphanage Supply Project
On March 16, 2022, the orphanage “Sonechko” in Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine was relocated to the “House of Supported Living” in Zhuravno, Ukraine, about 1.5 hours’ drive south of Lviv, Ukraine. There are 87 orphans, ages 1.5 to 7 years old, and 40 care-takers (also from Zaporizhzhia) at the facility. 10 orphans still need to be relocated from Zhaporizhia to Zhuravno. The maximum capacity of the orphanage is 100 children.
On September 9, 2022, VM4U visited the Zhuravno orphanage. During the visit, VM4U conducted a video recorded interview with the Orphanage Director, and a video recorded tour of the orphanage in order to clearly show the needs of the orphanage to potential sponsors. VM4U has received a written list of needs from the orphanage including washing machines, drying machines, dining tables/chairs, dining accessories (plates, forks, etc.), bed sheets, lights, window blinds, diapers, and medical supplies. Currently VM4U is seeking sponsors for this project with an estimated project cost of 26782.90 euros.
